: This 44 hour course offers a well-organized study of the bones, joints, and muscles, illustrated with beautiful full-color photographs, precise anatomical drawings, and clear mechanical drawings, and exciting interactive animations that allow the student to fully engage a 3-dimensional analysis of each major joint and muscle. These topics are presented in a specific order that reflects the Ida P. Rolf method for developing structural integrity of the myofascial systems in the body. Each topic includes palpation exercises to help you become comfortable with locating bony landmarks and exploring joint structures and motions, as well as learning the locations, actions, and trigger points of the muscles.
At the end of this course, students will be able to: ? Identify and differentiate tissue layers. ? Demonstrate the palpation of tissue layers and describe the quality of touch for each layer. ? Identify bony landmarks, origins and insertions, and action of skeletal muscles covered in class. ? Demonstrate the palpation of bony landmarks and skeletal muscles covered in class. ? Demonstrate knowledge of what joint actions each muscle generates.
All materials for this course are provided.
